About IQAC:

In accordance with the NAAC guidelines, the Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) was established in 2009 to initiate, monitor, evaluate and report on relevant measures to upgrade the quality of teaching, learning, evaluation and research initiatives in the campus. The Centre for Academic Excellence was created to conduct faculty development programmes. The internal quality assurance cell, the centre for academic excellence and the ISO collectively took care of continually upgrading the texture of quality in the campus, in keeping with the vision and mission of the management crafted on the basis of inputs from stakeholders.

Kumaraguru College of Technology, Coimbatore was reaccredited by NAAC in the year 2016 with A grade and CGPA 3.21 out of 4. In July 2022, following the NAAC Peer Team visit for third cycle of accreditation, KCT has been awarded A++ Grade, the highest grade awarded to institutions by NAAC with KCT securing a CGPA of 3.62 on a 4 – point scale. The IQAC of Kumaraguru College of Technology since its inception, has been consistently and actively involved in quality sustenance and quality enhancement activities.
